    After duking it out for the stage win on the Monster last year, Daniel J and Acevedo are back as team mates. The team looks to have a lot of strength in depth and it wouldn't surprise me if they won a few stages here with McCabe looking the best bet, but from a GC standpoint a podium may have to suffice.

    No Murphy or Magner which is a bit of a surprise. I guess they could be riding the Sea Otter Classic instead.

    Fouche is the only one I have heard of and that's only due to Ollie singing his praises (I think).

    I didn't expect them to be this strong though. :P

    Mind you the result doesn't look that different from Joe Martin after one stage and we all know what happened there. Plenty of racing still to go.

    meh, I was so stunned to see that someone from *mu Mauritius won the stage (on cqranking). And now it's not Dalais but Dal-Cin...

    but well, anyway, good result for him :)

    Not many GC names didn't make it to the group at six seconds. Burke had a small crash at 5km to go, so he finished down a little. Norris was in the same group. McCabe was the only sprinter however to make that group, so even with the removal of Mogollon, it was still selective enough to put the hurt on.

    He must have been getting stick at the dinner table last night for being one of the few Rally riders not to finish in the top-ten on yesterday's stage.

    Bit of a podium fail as Ellsay was actually third and not Tvetcov.

    Win #4 for Rally. Can they complete the Grand Slam later today?



    The only GC change I can see is that Tvetcov managed to grab one bonus second. Let's hope for a big shake up on the Monster.

    There must have been a bit of a regroupment.





    Dominant performance from Rally. The California invite doesn't look so silly now. Tvetcov also showing that Jelly Belly could be challenging for honours later in the year.

    Now we know the full result we can see that this wasn't the case, they just got some of the names in the break wrong and omitted Narvaez.

    Quote from: Jeff Louder
    Rally just rode tempo to the finish. No one on their own felt strong enough to do something (against their four riders). Jonathan played it really smart. I told him to take his chance when he could. He was super patient and jumped with about 250 meters to go.

    One other bit of news is that Chad Young crashed badly on a high speed descent. Got flown to hospital with severe facial injuries, but is in a stable condition.

    It's kinda funny how they moved this race so that it would serve as prep for local teams in advance of California. The funny bit being that due to the WT changes the number of local teams riding both now only numbers three (and Rally are very much going with their b-team).

    Start list is here, but it's the usual suspects of NA teams with Mobius, who have hung around from Gila, being the exception.

    There's more info on the race website about the stages, but here's the very short version:

    Stage 1 - An up and down shortish TT. Nothing that steep 3-4%

    Stage 2 - Six laps of a circuit and then a climb to the finish. This is the stage Kuss won last year, though it may not be exactly the same.

    Stage 3 - Twenty laps of a short circuit. Two short, but steep climbs per lap.

    Stage 4 - A 90 minute crit and unlike some of the crits we have seen so far this year, it is highly technical.

    Stage 5 - Bit of a mish mash. They start on the crit course, switch to a loop which they do six times and then back onto the crit course for a few more laps.

    .....and with UHC releasing their California line-up early, we can see that only Eaton, Daniel J and Mannion will ride both. So the move of race date will benefit only Jelly Belly (who might swap out a couple too) and three other riders. :lol
